Top Fort Knox FCU CD Rates Are Back

bricks of goldFort Knox Federal Credit Union has two special odd-term CD rates available to savers everywhere.

With a $500 minimum deposit, it pays:

  • 1.20% APY for 14-month CDs.
  • 1.40% APY for 23-month CDs.

Both are a win: The top nationally available 12-month offer on our CD Rates Leaderboard pays 1.05% APY; the 24-month CD rate, 1.25% APY.

You have to be a member of Fort Knox Federal Credit Union to buy these certificates of deposit, but anyone can qualify for membership by first joining the American Consumer Council.

From the CD rates page, click “open online” and then follow the instructions for nonmembers. When you’re asked for “Eligibility Criteria,” select “other” from the pull-down menu.

When you complete the application, the credit union will automatically enroll you in the consumer advocacy group, and you’ll be able to buy CDs as part of the application process.

Membership in the American Consumer Council is free. Joining the credit union will cost you $15 – a $10 membership fee and a $5 deposit into a share savings account.

Members can buy CDs online, over the phone or by visiting one of Fort Knox Federal Credit Union’s 14 branches surrounding the military base and the nation’s gold repository in central Kentucky.
